Christening Cake

This cake was just picked up this morning - our friend Nelson who will be Godfather today to Lucas, his cousin's little baby boy, asked if we could make a cake for their celebration.  The only request was that the cake be vanilla cake/strawberries so that's what we did.  10" square cake & a 6" round filled with vanilla mouse and fresh strawberries.  He left the design up to us, which is always fun.  We decided to quilt the bottom square tier and adorned the quilting with blue dragees.  We added a blue gum paste bow with a fondant band around the top tier, and topped it off with a gum paste cross and a little sleeping baby also made out of gum paste.  We also added a few little doves here and there which were dusted with a little white glitter.  We are quite happy with the way it turned out. A precious cake for a precious little boy. 

God Bless you Lucas and we wish you a wonderful life ahead!
